Thank you for joining us at the 19th Annual Storybook Gala!

It was a fantastical trip to the Wonderful Wizard of Oz! If you couldn’t make it this year, watch the recap video here:


At our 19th Annual Storybook Gala, presented by Findlay Toyota, you helped make history for our organization. We had over 600 guests join us in the Emerald City and raised the most money we’ve ever raised for our programs…over $685,000!!

Over two-thirds of our school-aged children cannot read proficiently…a staggering statistic that plagues our communities statewide. These children are our future; they are our future business owners, legislators, doctors, teachers, and so much more. But they need our help to get up to speed and back on their feet quickly in order to achieve those dreams.

That is why we are all the more grateful for you, our faithful supporters, for showing up in big, miraculous ways that night!

Thank you again for an incredible trip down the yellow brick road. We hope to see you next year for a very special 20th Annual “Cinderella” themed Storybook Gala. ✨
